After climbing one too many walls around the house, Rain’s mother put her in gymnastics at the age of 6 and it was love at first flip! Within a month, Rain was clocking in thirty plus hours of training a week. Sixteen years later, and after a successful collegiate gymnastics career including four all-american’s, Rain began utilizing her B.S. in biology and her love of human anatomy and physiology to work in healthcare. She enjoyed redirecting the lives of her diabetes research patients and rehabilitating her knee replacement rock stars, but soon became fed up with the “slap a band aid on it” approach of modern healthcare. She valued the prospect of improving the livelihood of those around her, but quickly discovered the key to long term success lied within preventative practices: functional training to challenge both body and mind. “Forcing the body to cope with a variety of foreign movement patterns not only promotes muscle growth but the creation of new neurological pathways within the brain, making us better learners and helping us stave off neurodegenerative tendencies. Increasing cardiovascular output gives our brains the factors necessary to make new neurons and subsequent connections! I like to incorporate these aspects into my training. Getting stronger and staying more able-bodied is a bonus (albeit a super cool bonus)!” The desire to approach health from a “prehab” versus rehab stance, combined with Rain’s own drive to stay active, quickly lead her to personal training. In 2015 she became NASM certified and has since specialized in individual and small-group training, bootcamps, TRX, and flexibility training.
Life’s short – work hard, play harder.
Preventative health: proper core engagement, postural fixes, dynamic movements, and mentally demanding exercises.
To facilitate other’s in finding their connection to fitness in order to make that connection lifelong.
